Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Berrima, Australia by 


Featured in Your Country’s Best http://www.redbubble.com/groups/happy-haven Group on 09/06/12

Holy Trinity Anglican Church (1847-1849), Berrima, in the New South Wales Southern Highlands, was designed by Edmund Blacket in the Gothic Revival style. It is said to have the been his first church.

Blacket closely reproduced the design of a medieval church in Wiltshire. There is an octagonal bellcote and a hammer-beam roof in the nave which once covered the whole ceiling. The church is built of sandstone quarried from the banks of the Wingecarribee River at the rear of the building.

The church exterior is intact though little remains of the original interior. The stained-glass windows are from Cornwall in England and are said to date back to the 15th century.

The railway, when it arrived in the 1860s, bypassed Berrima, following a route to the east through Mittagong and Bowral to Moss Vale. This has left the village relatively unchanged since 1890. By 1914 the population was down to 80. Road traffic began to increase with the arrival of the motor car and the establishment of Canberra.

Berrima’s historic value was recognised in the 1960s when efforts were made to restore the old buildings. The National Heritage Council declared the entire village an historic precinct.
